The sun-filled penthouse at 130 West 12th Street encompasses the entire floor of one of Greenwich Village's most desirable full-service buildings and is a very rare, completely custom home.
Having been masterfully renovated by AD 100 architect Steven Harris and with stunning terraces leading off every room, all details have been carefully considered to the most exacting standards.
The two key-locked elevators open directly onto a private entry hall that leads on to the gracious living rooms which span the full width of the apartment.
The elegant living room, formal dining room and eat-in kitchen connect via a series of cerused oak double doors.. All these rooms have beautiful French limestone floors and open onto a south-facing terrace, beyond which are some of the most impressive and protected views of Greenwich Village experienced year-round through custom bronze doors and windows imported from France.
The double aspect living room features a wood burning fireplace beautifully framed with a limestone mantel. Alongside it is an oak paneled study/media room.
Outside, a trellised seating area and multiple built-in seats, create many perfect spaces for entertaining in style.
The stunning chefs kitchen features superb custom cabinetry, a 60" La Cornue range, a large, marble topped island and another wood-burning fireplace. A Scullery adjoins to allow for seamless entertaining.
At the opposite end of the apartment is the luxurious owner's suite.
